SFGAdv.... 25 new rides?

Sunday, October 7, 2001 9:03 AM
I was looking at an old "spring break" commercial for SF Great Adventure [Its from when Medusa was new... {'99?}] and the announcer says: "The first of 25 new rides is Medusa". Ok, so my question is, were these 25 new rides all part of that year? (I am assuming the rest were flat rides if that was the case...).. but even so, doesn't that seem like "too many" rides? Or were these all "planned" rides by Six Flags for the future? I looked at the website and it doesn't even look like it has 25 (flat rides) total... not to mention "new" ones.

Anybody who could clarify on the 25 new rides deal?

There were 3 coasters in 1999 Medusa which was a major expansion and Road Runners Railway along with Black Beards Lost Treasure Train and yes the rest were flat rides.

Twenty five new rides, shows and attractions. It wasn't only rides, my friend....

I think a major portion of those 25 rides (all added that year) were kiddie rides. They added a bunch of them to the area they call the Looney Tunes Seaport. They added the 3 coasters mentioned above and I think they added at least 4 flat rides (Chaos, Evolution, Houdini's Great Escape and The Pendulum). I think there may have been one other too but, I can't remember what it was called.

It was a full addition of 25 rides.  3 Coasters, a few adult flats, plus a WHOLE NEW KIDDY SECTION!  Looney Toons Seaport...alone holding at least 10 rides!  Evolution, Polyp, Frisbee, Jump, Top Spin, and Time Warp were a few of the new flat rides for adults.

It could of meant 25 new THRILL rides for all the six flags theme parks combined.

bad32, it was definitely all for Great Adventure. Premier Parks idea was to cut down on the extremely long lines by installing more rides to disperse crowds. Did it work? Well, as you can probably guess, the park got more, not less crowded. In addition to above rides mentioned, they also added a Huss Breakdance in front of Viper.
